Govind Dev Ji Temple in Jaipur

Govind Dev Ji Temple

Jaipur is a renowned destination thanks to its spiritual landmarks and stunning architecture. Among them is the grand Govind Devji Mandir, located within the City Palace complex between Badal Mahal and Chandra Mahal. The temple was built in 1735 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh II and houses the idol of Lord Krishna's form, Govind Dev ji, which was the main deity of Amber’s Kachawaha Dynasty.

One of the unique features of the temple is the colourful idol of Govind Devji, known as Bajrakrit. During the temple's construction, Raja Sawai Jai Singh II, the founder of Jaipur, brought the idol from Vrindavan. According to legends, the sacred image of Lord Govind Dev ji was made by Barjranabh, the great-grandson of Lord Krishna, who crafted it at the age of 13 by carefully following his grandmother's instructions.
